Default Wacky 'flapping wing' RC Pterodactyl Ornithopter

Was at a big UK show at the weekend watching multi thousand jets and warbirds fly around...but the thing that stole the show was this Pterodactyl toy. It sold out in seconds. I've seen quite a few ornithopters and they always looked a bit clumsy and unstable but this thing flies effortlessly and appears to be easy to control.

I have seen one or two hairy flights with it as if it struggles to stay up.
I wonder how long the joint mechanism will last and if parts will be available for it.
I see Hobby King sell it,

My wife was impressed with it and wants us to buy one. I thought it was a bit expensive.

I would love to have one of these but that gear sound reminds me of the little wind up figures that used to march across the table, desk or floor. They never seemed to last that long.
